This performance is an original adaptation of four Aesop’s Fables by Julie Tattershall. Characters in each of the four fables take on modern personas for a fun re-telling of old favorites, as described below. The performance includes percussion, sound effects, and audience participation.
- “The Tortoise and the Hare” is performed as a race between a UPS driver and a noblewoman.
- “The Wind and the Sun” is performed as a story about a southern belle and a Western sheriff.
- “The Miser and His Gold” is performed as a story about a stuffy scrooge, a gremlin, and a fashion icon.
- “The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse” is performed as the story of a laid-back hippie and a stressed-out video gamer.
This performance is recommended for Tulsa Public Schools PreK classrooms in preparation for the Kindergarten Any Given Child-Tulsa field trip to see a live theatre puppet show performance of Aesop’s Fables.
